York Hall, London - Cruiserweight contender Dmytro Kucher (24-1, 18 KOs) destroyed former WBO world champion Enzo Maccarinelli (41-8, 33 KOs) in the first round to capture the vacant European cruiserweight title. Kucher stunned Maccarinelli with a left hook and then battered him down with a series of big punches.
Maccarinelli was barely able to rise with his legs not under him and the fight was waved off.
This was Maccarinelli's first fight since scoring a scary fourth round knockout over former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. last December in Moscow, Russia.
